Who We Are
Faith Playground is a Non Profit Organization (in the works) founded by Joey Collier, in an effort to provide clean, fun, and safe online games and entertainment in a family friendly, morally sound, Christian environment.
More About Us, in the words of our founder.
At my lowest, it was Christ who lifted me up. He changed my world and continues to bring me a peace I had never known before. Even in the challenging times of today, I know that God is at work in my life.
In late 2008, I took a new job and moved back to the town I grew up in. After a short few months, the economy took it's toil on the company, and left me without work in a small town without many options. The next week I learned my wife and I were pregnant! A wonderful blessing at such a hard time. Rather than give up, my wonderful wife and I decided to dig deep, put faith in the Lord, and start fighting back. To stop complaining about the problem areas in life, and start doing something about them. Faith Playground was created to address one (important and much needed) issue, but is only the beginning. We are on a mission to change the world, one bright light in a cloud of darkness at a time.
Faith Playground is a place where kids, teens, and adults can all come and enjoy fun, clean, & safe entertainment without the constant white noise of violence and inappropriate interference that floods the internet today. We strive to create a safe environment for children and at the same time, create a compelling entertainment zone for adults. Gaming reaches all ages, and should be available to all of us in an appropriate, respectful manor, without challenging our morals.
Where We Are At Today
Over 200 million people play casual games each month over the Internet. Casual games are defined as a game played for a short period of time (5 - 10 minutes); though, it is very common for people to play one game after another for many hours. I consider myself an active gamer, and am shocked at how few gaming websites (game portals) harbor a "morals over money" belief. Most websites claim to only target teen and adult audiences, while their site content and visitor statistics often tell a different story. The sad truth is, there are just not that many places to play games online that are not surrounded by corruptible material. Often the same website that has a clean, family friendly game, will have twice as many violent and non-kid friendly games along side it. It turns something in my soul when a website for young girls is filled with weight-loss ads, and self-image destroying content. I cannot stand by and watch when I have the capability to provide an alternative.
What We Are Doing
Faith Playground's flagship is to provide a safe haven, but we hope to do far more than just that. We are actively developing and seeking out developers to create clean and uplifting games. Faith Playground is active in several Christian groups and communities, and a strong believer that faith brings people closer together. Faith Playground is one of the leading web sites for Christian Online Games; however, our desire is to benefit both believers AND non-believers. We hope that by creating a place where family friendly entertainment prevails, we will not only prove that there is a strong desire for this kind of website, but we will also spark a trend, making a positive impact on the online world.
My wife and I have given ourselves
to this project, risking everything in hope that we are not alone in our plight. We strongly believe that we can make a difference and provide a better future (not only for our children, but for all of us) if we stand for what we believe in. Faith Playground is not here to make a profit, but we hope with your support and donations, we can continue to cover our
web server and operation cost.
